Following the news that Shipwrecked will be returning to our screens, today it was announced that Vick Hope will be narrate the new series.
Most recently seen taking part in Strictly Come Dancing, the Capital FM Breakfast co-host and TV presenter Vick Hope will be the voice of the all-new series of Shipwrecked, the pioneering paradise island reality show which returns for a new 15-part prime-time series on E4 in early 2019.
The new series will see a batch of adventurous young castaways competing in the ultimate popularity contest on two uninhabited paradise islands in the South Pacific. The two tribes – Sharks and Tigers – will battle it out to win over new arrivals to their respective islands, with a £50k prize fund at stake for the largest tribe at the end of the competition.
Speaking about narrating the series, Vick said “I’m chuffed to be voicing the all new series of Shipwrecked. I was such a fan of the show back in the day on T4, and my friends and I would be so invested in all the tribal twists and turns on Shark and Tiger Island, so it’s a real honour to get to have the first sneak peek at winter’s hottest reality show. There are some amazing characters, epic bombshells and lovely waves of nostalgia ahead.”
Neale Simpson, Executive Producer for Fizz commented “Vick is the perfect voice for the Shipwrecked and we're thrilled that she is joining us to tell the remarkable story of our island adventures. We've loved seeing Vick become instantly hooked on the mischief and mayhem that ensues as the Tigers and Sharks battle it out in the ultimate popularity contest in paradise.”
Karl Warner, Controller of E4 added “Shipwrecked changed the game, and we’re very excited about the new series that confidently shakes up reality TV once again. Thanks to the amazing creative team behind the camera, a diverse cast of characters and the brilliant talents of Vick Hope, the new series has all the ingredients for a fresh blast of sunshine and surprises to kick off a hugely exciting year ahead on E4.”
